Home Sweet Home to Chimney Swifts

My husband and I have been enjoying our walks in the new hood we moved into.  This neighborhood  is so sweet and cute with so much eye candy for old house lovers.  Our most recent discovery is the Old Patton Memorial Hospital.  It was dedicated in 1913 and remained a hospital for 40 years.  It has been made into apartments now, but still oozes with charm and mystery.

Our walks after dinner have been timed perfectly to see the chimney swifts fly into the chimney in the Patton building around dusk.  I never get tired of watching them go home to settle in for the night.  They will be leaving for the tropics soon, so we have a short period of time to see the amazing display of skill as they drop in a swirling current.
